Despite having good ratings and reviews on food forums and blogs, I feel that Gaia Korean Restaurant is relatively under the radar. When I visited its Suntec City Mall outlet on Saturday evening, I was surprised to find that the restaurant was not at all crowded. The reason might be that it is rather out of the way. Also, it is located alongside prominent names such as Kuishin-Bo.

Nevertheless, I decided to give it a try as I had huge cravings for Korean food. I was slightly disappointed by the menu because it had very limited choices. In addition, most of the dishes (except for lunch sets) were expensive. We decided on a bibimbap (with chicken) that costs $18 and a kimchi hotpot (with pork) that costs $45.

Before our dishes arrived, we were served an assortment Banchan, or korean appetizers: kimchii, sweet potato, preserved seaweed, spinach and omelette. My favourite had got to be the kimchii and preserved seaweed. The kimchi was crunchy, slightly spicy and moderately salted, while the preserved seaweed was fragrant and amazingly addictive with a tinge of sweetness.The best part is that the banchans are refillable! Not surprisingly, the 20 minutes of waiting time passed quickly.

When the main dishes arrived, we couldn't wait to tuck in. The hotpot was huge, and filled with tantalizing red, hot kimchi soup. I liked that there was a heater to keep the soup warm throughout our meal. The glass noodles were smooth, chewy and simply delicious. But the highlight of the dish had got to be the soup itself, which tasted as good as it looked. Other ingredients in the soup included pork, cabbage, enoki, and tofu. The bibimbap, on the other hand, was rather normal. But I like that there was an ample portion of meat.

All in all, it was a very satisfying Korean meal. One of the best restaurants I say! I will definitely go back again to try the much recommended seafood pancake, ginseng chicken soup and the lunch sets.
